Will the Democrats shut out the fourth largest state in the country? Well, they are sure trying….or, well, they are threatening if Florida doesn’t change the January 29th primary date. What does that mean? Florida has its local and state primary on the 29th for sure but it can (read: will need to) change the primary date for the presidential election from the January 29th date which is against the national democratic party rules. So, stay tuned…this is probably/hopefully a bullying tactic by the democrats to make Florida in compliance. However, if the date does not change, Florida does not get to vote for the democratic primary candidate. Yeesh!
Either way, Floridians should vote on January 29th for the local and state issues and again on whatever presidential primary date it chosen.

I stand by the belief that everyone is entitled to have their own, just please place your beliefs in an educated mind. <Quote – Phun Chang>
